Canada
Hi, I'm Thomas and I live on Vancouver Island in Canada. I moved here recently from the Northwest Territories to live with my older Brother and family. I've been practicing photography for over nine years but during the last four years I haven't done it a whole lot. I'm just now getting back into it but I have high hopes for this new landscape I'm in and I hope to keep on getting better!

I also love to write, draw and paint. I'm not that good at them, yet. I'm working on a Fallout Fan-Fiction that I'm excited to do...It needs a lot of work! One day I will start posting that sort of stuff too ^.^

It's okay if you can't pronounce my last name. It's a Greek surname.

Hey!

I just want to say thank you. When I get feedback, even a favorite, I usually go check out that persons page. If anything does happen to catch my eye, or when I see some of the talent that's out there, I'll usually favorite a couple things, comment, or if it grabs me enough, even add a watch. I imagine it's much the same with a lot of people. When new people come around, that's always awesome. It may be a 'random fav' but I notice and am thankful. 

Without you all, especially my friends and watchers who have stuck around thus far (THANK YOU!), there would be no photography, or anything, by Thomas Koidhis. They say, and I still tend to agree, that it is best to do your art primarily for yourself. For your own enjoyment, growth, desire, whatever. Since the main purpose of art is to express something though, there will always be the necessary side of the viewer or appreciator - 'you.' 

I noticed I somewhat recently crested over 1500 watchers. FIFTEEN HUNDRED. That blows my mind.

By some standards it may not be so far out, but for me, I can still remember 6 or so years ago when I could never have imagined having this sort of attention or developing my technique to a level that it becomes that widely appreciated.

I still remember when, if I got twenty favorites on a Deviation, it was cause for some celebration... 


Wow, you guys! 

Over 1500 watches, 430K+ Deviation views and almost 41,000 favorites. 

I almost have no words for that. It's just numbers but they represent that what I'm sharing - my life blood, really - reaches people. 


Whether you've been around for years, brand new or just passing through - you have my most sincere gratitude and welcome.


If you like what you see here, awesome! I hope you keep coming back. If not, that's okay. I always welcome (hopefully constructive) critique if you have any.


---


I'm back in a swing of working on art! More or less. 

Several years ago I started on a Fallout Fan-Fiction. I think it was supposed to be a novella of sorts. At the time, I only got maybe 3-4 short paragraphs done, writing 'by the seat of my pants.' While this style has its benefits (I'll still do it at times), it was perhaps not for the best to try that for the whole thing. When I pulled it up this October, feeling the mood to work on it again, I realized something - I had NO idea what I was doing, haha. Being a fair bit older now, I understand things differently, perhaps a little more thoroughly and realistically and I want to take another swing at it. It's a steep learning curve in some ways BUT.. I like it that way. If anyone does play Fallout (the story-line of 3 will be the main focus), what are some things you would like to see/would be pissed that I didn't include? If you like fiction in general I welcome any input/advice.

((I reallly like my bracketing hey...Gotta work on not doing that lol.))

So at the moment I'm studying lore and some other stuff. Doing character development and plotting. I probably won't have anything I'm willing to post for a while (I'm slow) but I do plan to eventually post my fiction chapters on dA. I'm also trying to keep to a "process one .raw a day" thing, so I should have something posted a little later. That one a day thing may change if/when I start working in town where I live now. I do want to work on one hand but on the other I feel so lazy..it's sad..So much rain! ..Guess I have to suck it up?
